Online home based jobs and other Internet based businesses are becoming increasingly popular in India.
Even though Internet penetration in India is much lower compared to developed countries; the number of people online is still huge.
As more and more Indians discover the Internet and the business opportunities that are available online, more is the likelihood of being a victim of scam.
The idea of working online from home is very attractive to most people.
After all, who would not like to be his or her own boss.
People looking for work at home opportunities in India should not get overly excited at the prospect of earning dollars.
Just because you are living in India does not mean you are immune to online white collar crimes.
After all, scammers do not care about geographical boundaries.
If everyone could earn thousand of dollars by setting up some company-sponsored, duplicate website or just by typing ads, as those advertisements depicts, then every Indian would be rich.
Be careful of exaggerated claims of earnings or profits.
A scammer will give you assurance that you will earn huge profits.
You might even be asked to invest some initial amount.
But soon you will realize that these con artists just want to take your money and give you little or nothing in return.
Many unscrupulous sites providing work at home business opportunities will promise you cash and rewards.
But at the time of payment, they may just close your account.
They will give one reason or another to avoid paying you.
Sometimes these sites will simply not give you enough opportunity to reach the minimum payout amount.
Yes you can become rich through online business opportunities, but it takes time and effort.
Choose legitimate business.
If you are new to Internet entrepreneurship, then I suggest you read some articles and manuals that are available online.
It is better to take your time and learn the 'tricks of the trade' before starting any online business from home.
